As a Chartered Accountant, I trained with, what was then, one of the big 6, later to consolidate to the big 4! I joined the Growing Businesses Department of Coopers & Lybrand, who later merged with Price Waterhouse to become the now PWC. An opportunity to join Growing Businesses was a rare opportunity in one of the big firms.
From the outset I thrived on being able to see the bigger picture and understand the whole business. We had the opportunity to liaise with, and add value to, the owners and Directors. Throughout my career, despite the options to move away from working in the SME sector, it’s always maintained my passion and interest.
I’m often asked what surprises me most in business…
“People being brave enough to go it alone and start their own business. It takes courage, there are risks associated with it and it can be a lonely place. The key to success is being aware of and managing risk as best you can, if not your hard work could all have been for nothing.”

Our customers are often expert in their field, perhaps with niche of niche expertise in their chosen field of recruitment, managing relationships and matching the right candidate to the right role. But recruitment is a sector characterised by a plethora of legislation changes, year after year. Our aim is to keep abreast of these changes and communicate with our customers so they’re aware of what’s happening and where they may need to be seeking further guidance.
